My favourite would still be the modded Pioneers, but that's mainly a comfort thing for me. 

 You should throw the ultrasone pro 750 into the mix. I think you would have a new favorite. They have come down quite a bit in price lately.

I used to have one actually. I think I traded it for the HD25-13-ii rolleyes.gif

I want a new Sub Bass Can that doesn't ruin everything elese like my XB700s, do and I love Amping my dt 880 for Dub Step, so I figured I'd go with the Dt 1350 since it's already a little sub heavy and it's transparent enough that some extra bass UMPH shouldn't kill those nice Mids and Highs... 

 

I am constantly surprised at how deep the bass reaches with the 1350. It's not "boom" bass - but it's solid, controlled and DEEP. I am amping with a RSA P-51, but I honestly don't think that's even required for it to drive down in that range. I just like it. :)

Yea you might be right but, have you heard bass out of a real Bass Head Full Sized Can... granted the dt 1350 proably has wonderful bass but unless its ZOMG *chokes on that bass* it's not as FUN as I might like to tbh xD

 

But I'm in a contest to win so if I get em :D that will be cool. And I do Need some Cans for when I work [I clean houses] and these being as small as they are might be just what I need ^^

Might be just me, but I would never ask a portable sized headphone (which the 1350 certainly is) to manage the same performance as a full-size. The fact that it out-performs so many of them, is telling. 
 
I would not consider it a bass-head can, it sounds better than they do in all respects. And it is certainly a long way away from anything bass-shy.

THat does still sound good, as I started doing some LIGHT landscaping [for some rich folks] so these would be useful when I'm watering thier plants or picking up thier dogs droppings

Just got my new DT1350 , the cable is very different to my T50p, which is rubberised , the DT cable is like regular cable and less prone to snagging unlike the T50p

It's very likely they've made changes over time. The T50p pads have changed from when I originally had them.

Recently bought Ibasso DX100, using with w3 as iem.

Though now I need a portable narrowed down to Dt1350 and HD25-1-2.

Which one is better for jazz, blues, funk, r&b?

post #430 of 440

I think the DT1350 is a bit more refined, and would handle the jazz better. But the 25-1 ii is a great can. I don't think you can make a mistake with either one.

Using "jazz-blues-funk-r&b" as a literal sliding scale, I'd lean towards the DT1350 for jazz and HD25 for the R&B depending which side you listen to more. If I had to pick one... DT1350.

Damn those M80s are pirdy.  Just wish they were a tad more comfortable.

I've had an amperior in my possession for a little while now, but I don't have any of my reference headphones from the review anymore (the HDJ-2000 is still around, but has been modded further). 

 

Still, maybe I'll append some notes to the review in the near future.

Looking forward to it. How do you like the Amps? For me, I enjoyed it for a while but then the sound sig just became too aggressive to my ears. To my surprise, I started preferring the DT1350s more laidback nature over the Amperiors even though overal timbre is a bit better in the Amperiors. Still a bit too bright for me in the mids and highs though.

I find the sound signature fairly similar, though maybe less aggressive than a standard HD25. Closer to the HD25-13 if anything. I really like the pads; they're softer and far more comfortable, though don't isolate as well.

 

I actually have a funny idea to swap out the drivers for the HD25-13 ones, so I'd have a 600 ohm Amperior...
